Thanks to Bluetooth® technology you can wirelessly stream music to AXiS XS from your iPhone, Android, Blackberry or other Bluetooth® device, such as a laptop or tablet. No physical docking necessary.

Engineered to Perform

AXiS’s superb audio performance is thanks to the inclusion of NXT’s patented ‘Balanced-Radiator’ (BR) loudspeaker technology. BR drive units combine the performance attributes of an NXT flat panel speaker with the pistonic movement of a conventional loudspeaker, resulting in a high performance compact drive unit that can cover a wider range of frequencies.

The result is 8 watts of high resolution digital audio from AXiS’s Class D amplifier, a smooth frequency response, expansive sound stage and deep, satisfying bass.

Made for Your Tunes: AXiS XS is compatible with all the following models of iPod and iPhone:
